Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World by Keiichi Sigsawa

Kino no Tabi  Volume 1: Book one of THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD (v. 1) - Maya Bohnhoff, Keiichi Sigsawa, Kouhaku Kuroboshi, Andrew Cunningham

Apparently this is an anime series. I've never seen it so I went into the this book with no expectations. I'm glad , because I really enjoyed this. Most reviews mention how they were disappointed when comparing this to the series. So my advice would be to read this before seeing the anime.

 

This book has 6 chapters.

Grownup Country

The Land of Shared Pain

The Land of Majority Rules

Three Men on the Rails

The Land of Peace

Coliseum

Each chapter was a different "land/country" that Kino visits for 3 days.  I liked how I could connect the story that was being told with things that go on in everyday life. Not sure which one is my favorite, but I can tell you Coliseum was my least favorite.

 

I wish my library had the next book.
